Awesome! GLWS :)


Really beautiful

Hello, I am your first customer :) I am unable to make it work on custom post types… what is the process ? can you help me do it ?

Hello Samel, yes this is it. We do have @membertype ( buddypress member type) in drop down. but when we want to sort all member like @doctor for example it does not find the types nor sort them.. Best regards, H

Hello there,

I have tried the best I could to achieve this feature, this code can be used for this implementation BUT atwho.js which powers this plugin will basically override the users and will list nothing when you type a member type. Why? because it has a behavior of matching the search key to each given result, so while typing @doctor and we have a list of doctors but they have no ‘doctor’ in their id, it will prevent the dropdown from happening.

Sorry about this.



So I solved this.

1. Add this code to your child theme’s functions file:

2. Edit the plugin to insert 2 lines of JavaScript, this file: mentions-ajax-dropdown/Includes/Plugin.php, replace the atSettings method (class function) with this one from the paste



Hey Samuel! It’s Joshua! This looks like another great plugin! Keep up the great work!

Hey Joshua! Hope you’re good. Thank you very much for that! Will do. Have a good day :)

Really usefull plugin. Is it available to make it work pretty like fb even more?
1) Intergate function memtion @ to buddypress privacy plugin. Such as they can choose disabled complete or part of private (mean no one can memtion), only friends ect… just like user do with view in buddypress privacy plugin for activity
2) Remove @. Given pretty mention just like facebook. Call displayname (name that user buddypress set published view)
With 2 of this feature. I belive this is very needed plugin for who use buddypress. Thanks

Hello Julia,

Yes, that is quite easy to integrate.

1. I can write a custom plugin addon for you for this, to add a custom setting to BuddyPress member settings page to choose who can mention them. I just never had the idea to make it a feature.

2. It is quite easy to drop the [at] sign upon mention select, but, it is a bad practice to pull usernames with any character being typed so logically the user has to type [at] in order to get a dropdown and pick the users to select.



1) Oh you no need to create plugin
You just need intergate it and give user setting themseft for function @ as what they want in setting
The bad thing of this plugin did not allow for multi option such as: follower + group+friends , or follower + group or follower + friend only. If you can pick over the plugin, add all plugin and extra this function to your plugin as brand new power feature plugin will be great
Because this plugin is abandance, the developer did not take care support forum and active or update, i think you can complete use it.

2) Due to priavte user setting so. When someone memtion by username. So the dropdown will appear in listed allow [at] only. in short i call memtion is[at]. so i would like this function will work pretty like fb still.
Example user A set allow [at] for only friends. So only his friends, when his friend [at] will see him in listed dropdown. Overwide none friend, etc.. can not [at]him at all.
Under activity time will have small text to notify any friend know that how he set [at], so there friend and visiter know what is going they can do with [at] to him or not.
